for several months, rather than a referendum on president obama. yet we saw over the course of the summer the polls got worse for the democrats. >> because of what donna just said. she's exactly right. they're looking for results. the summer kicked off with joe biden predicting a gain of 500,000 jobs per month. instead, we've lost 400,000 jobs. over the summer, in the spring, the president said we'll come to love, by the fall, health care. none of that has played out. this is -- you mentioned it. it is like '92. another dynamic happening in '92, wasn't just dissatisfaction with the economy. you remember that ross perot was a presence in that race, a big one, an unprecedented one. it was about the deficit, which is a framework for the size and the scope and the reach and the intrusion and the efficacy of government. that's replaying itself out right here. this is not a petulant, angry, anti-obama thing. this is against the reach, the overreach of the government on his watch and the one poert control of overreaching government.
